I'm working on a cropped jacket from Adorn (site's offline now) and I'm having trouble with interpreting a part of the pattern for the left front of the jacket. I've tried a billion possibilities of interpreting it, but all of them have led me to different numbers of resulting sts.
The whole left front is pretty much worked in stockinette stitch, combining the bird's eye pattern, which doesn't affect my problem.
I start out with 15 sts, then work the 1st row, thus not inc at all. Then the written pattern says "Cont in pat as established, (working inc into pat-not a problem for me) casting on at beg of WS rows as foll: 3 sts twice, 2 sts 3 times, inc 1 every WS row 6 times, AT THE SAME TIME, work increases at side edge (beg of RS rows) same as back--37 sts...."

For the increasing for the "back" part, it says to inc 1 st at each side every 6th row, but for here I guess it means that it's just for the beg of the row...

So I tried writing out the pattern (which corresp with the birds eye patt which has 16 rows, and // meaning as written), but I get only 36 sts:

CO 15.
2--CO 3 (18 sts)
4--CO 3 (21 sts)
6--CO 2 (23 sts)
7--INC 1(24 sts)
8--CO 2 (26 sts)
10--CO 2 (28 sts)
12--inc 1 (29)
13--INC 1 (30)
14--inc 1 (31)
16--inc 1 (32)
2--inc 1 (33)
3--INC 1 (34)
4--inc 1 (35)
6--inc 1 (36)

I think that I'm misinterpreting the pattern starting with the "inc 1 st every WS row".

Please post ANY ideas/solutions! Cheesy

Yes, you inc 1 at the beginning of every WS row 6 x, and you will also inc at the beg of the RS rows as you did for the back piece. So the RS row inc, follow the same instructions as on the back as to when to start and how.

casting on at beg of WS rows as foll: 3 sts twice, 2 sts 3 times, inc 1 every WS row 6 times, AT THE SAME TIME, work increases at side edge (beg of RS rows) same as back--37 sts

Try this -

CO 15. (colors are the same as the instructions, // is no increase)
1-- inc 1(16 sts)
2--CO 3 (19 sts)      
3-- //   
4--CO 3 (22 sts)   
6--CO 2 (24 sts)   
7--inc 1   (25 sts)
8--CO 2 (27 sts)   
10--CO 2 (29 sts)   
12--inc 1 (30 sts)   
13--INC 1 (31 sts)   
14--inc 1 (32sts)   
16--inc 1 (33sts)   
18--inc 1 (34sts)   
19--INC 1 (35sts)   
20--inc 1 (36sts)      
22--inc 1 (37sts)
